Sarah Scachner said of the composition;
We wanted the atmosphere of the theme to instantly transport the listener to another time and place, filled with mystery and uncertainty. There are Norse instruments, but they are used in a more modern way. The theme represents Eivor’s journey as well as the Vikings’ hope for a better life as they move further south into the Anglo-Saxon regions.
Jesper Kyd added, “We wanted to evoke Eivor’s journey, what drives them and the bond they have with their family. Eivor is searching for something and this longing to find it and resolve it is a key element reflected in the melody and mood.”
Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla launches for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on November 17, 2020. It will launch for PS5 and Xbox Series X when they are available.
